The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy
Healing the Social Brain
An update to the classic text that links neuroscience and human behaviour in the context of therapy.
This groundbreaking book explores the recent revolution in psychotherapy that has brought an understanding of the social nature of people’s brains to a therapeutic context. Louis Cozolino is a master at synthesising neuroscientific information and demonstrating how it applies to psychotherapy practise. New material on altruism, executive function, trauma and change round out this essential book.
“If anyone is going to make the effort to read such a sizeable book it must be a special experience, and this was a treat... Essentially, this is a ‘must read’ for psychotherapists of the 21st century.” — The British Journal of Psychiatry
